Great fun for 1st 30 minutes
Grade D jungle pic with all the clichés and stereotypes (racist ones abound of course)elevated by some lovely nudity, black and white. Also, fun for some truly bizarre soundtrack choices.
After they dress the girl and go to Europe its all downhill. The last few minutes of the film are the footage as the first few. In between its a desert. If you aren't having fun, you can skip it. You ain't missing nothing.

The rest of the story
I've told this story other places but it's worth telling again. Liane Jungle Goddess was not just shown in the grind house theaters. Here in Appleton, Wisconsin, US I saw the film when I was 10 or eleven-- twice.
After that I had looked for the film for the next 52 years or so because I never forgot it. You can imagine the young boy seeing a full grown woman for the first time with few or no clothes on.
The IMDb tells us that Liane Jungle Goddess was mistakenly released as a "General Audiences" or "G" rated film. I was sort of a free range kid (as much as any of us were) and I saw this in the early evening on two consecutive nights. I've tried to remember that early viewing as I experienced it.
